Mushrooms/ Macro Monday

Unknown mushroom(s)

I have no idea what kind of mushroom this is but it was growing underneath a pine tree last Friday. I think it's actually several mushrooms. I took the photo because I liked the quirky shapes.

Mushrooms are very interesting; there are so many varieties and they grow in so many places!

I have been taking mushroom photos, too, but none as nice as this one. In fact, some of mine are even a little gross.

Very quirky shapes and even the texture and tone seem quite unusual! Great shot!

I thought it was some kind of fuzzy, furry little animal all scrunched up to keep out the cold!

Well, that's a gnarly 'shroom. MB

I like the shapes too

you asked about the effects on my MYM shot
I took it from across the lake and it was blurry so I played with softening the edges to make the blur look intentional and then I added vibrance to the center to accentuate the yellow leaves
all done in Picnik and all a happy accident :)

It's very interesting! Looks to me like a teddy bear hugging himself.

Rebecca said...

Looks like a few mushrooms cuddled together!

Jay said...

I like the way funghi grows together like this and just fits itself around the other fruiting parts!

lisaschaos said...

I thought they were some kind of creature at first, lol. Lovely!

George said...

These are quirky shapes indeed. But they do result in a great macro.

SouthernSass said...
